Josh Rosen commits to UCLA with nothing but Bruins hats

Josh RosenUsually when football recruits make their college commitment announcements, they set out a number of hats on a table in front of them and pick the hat of the school they plan to attend.

St. John Bosco quarterback Josh Rosen, who is the No. 1-rated QB in the 2015 recruiting class, decided to put a spin on the hat game that made his plans much more definitive.

As the young QB made his announcement, he had someone pull three hats out and lay them on the table. All three were different varieties of UCLA hats. Rosen also put on a Bruins hat to make it four.

Rosen’s announcement that he was planning to commit to the Bruins was one of the worst-kept secrets for a few months. Though the announcement lacked surprise, I’m sure it was no less exciting for the Bruins program.

Top QB recruit Josh Rosen expected to commit to UCLA

Josh RosenJosh Rosen, one of the top quarterback recruits in the 2015 high school recruiting class, will announce his college commitment plans on Thursday, and he’s expected to choose UCLA.

Rosen is a quarterback at St. John Bosco in Bellflower, Calif., and he threw for 3,200 yards, 39 touchdowns and seven interceptions while leading Bosco to a 16-0 season as a junior in the fall. Rosen is ranked by Rivals as the No. 1 player in the state and No. 2 player in the country. He has scholarship offers from notable programs like Alabama, Florida State, Michigan and Notre Dame, but he was believed to be most strongly considering UCLA and Cal.

It’s been a long-believed secret that Rosen would be committing to UCLA. According to the OC Register’s Ryan Kartje, Rosen was among a group of quarterbacks throwing at UCLA’s practice field on Wednesday:

That’s a pretty strong sign about his ties to the Bruins.

If Rosen does commit to UCLA, that would give the two rival SoCal programs the top two quarterback recruits in the 2015 class; St. Bonaventure quarterback Ricky Town committed to USC in late January. He and Rosen are 1-2 by most recruiting sites.
